As I have not done regular posts I thought I would do an over view of our main wedding season, we still have some to go before the year is out. Were there any trends? Well yes in that a number of brides were keen to be hands on so provided their own jam jars, pale blue was popular as were pastels and a more informal or wild feel.The 'antique/vintage' theme still loomed large so there was lots of lace, gyp and dusky pink. Oh, and I nearly forgot - coral! The images below will bear this out. We did have a hand full of weddings early in the season with coral/peach making it's first appearence:

Well it came, was very busy and this is what was left:
And the other a lovely spring wedding with ranunculus, clematis, lisianthus,genister to name a few.
This week will probably see the end of a lot of the spring flowers as narcissus and ranunculas are getting increasingly more difficult to get hold of but peonies are beginning to making an appearence. We have another busy weekend coming up with a Friday and Saturday weddings so fingers crossed for the weather.

I am sure this happens in many a trade or profession and hence why the 'pantone'colour chart was developed. For this weekends 'peaches and cream'wedding I ordered 'salmon'ranunculus as I wanted a nice pastel peach, it said salmon on the label but they were definately orange!However all was not lost as the David Austin 'Juliet' rose came up trumps so along with a few more blooms, I think the desired affect was achieved.

We were then at Balackstock Farm on the Sunday for a wedding open day - again sunny and a steady flow of potential brides.

Last weekend saw us preparing for more parties, a garden party in a marquee with cream jugs and a 25th Wedding celebration. The brief for that was 'citrus' colours and I think we got it right!
I also wanted to share these lovely peonies, there really are some stunners around this year.
We have more weddings this weekend and a wedding fair at Blackstock Farm on Sunday so I must be armed with my camera - to be continued!

A week on and here I am. Following on from an earlier tweet of jugs, jugs and more jugs as this weekends wedding and Summer Ball both chose jugs for their table flowers. The wedding had a beach theme with blues and creams and pebbles for place names and the Ball - Summer - wishful thinking!
